About the Event
The Make-A-Wish Triathlon at Sea Colony is an exciting 1.5K ocean swim, 41K bike and 10K run for up to 1,000 athletes. Hosted in Bethany Beach, Del., the event is in its 28th year. Athletes can compete as an individual or as a member of a relay team. We are also excited to offer a new participation option at this year's Triathlon - AquaVelo! For athletes who prefer to swim and bike but not run, this course option is for you!
The ocean swim, scenic bike and run courses and phenomenal post-race picnic make this race a favorite among both seasoned triathletes and weekend warriors. All proceeds and pledges from the event benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of the Mid-Atlantic, whose mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Serving the states of Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland and Northern Virginia, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-Atlantic is proud to have granted the wishes of more than 6,500 area children.
Fees for individual participants (in the full Triathlon or AquaVelo) at the 2011 event will be $150*. The fee for a relay team is $150* per athlete. If you are not a member of the USAT, a $10* one-day license fee is required.
With the average cost of a wish in the Mid-Atlantic area at $7,500, we strongly encourage participants to fundraise as much as they can with a minimum goal of $150. By fundraising as you train, you add even more meaning to your miles. Upon registering, each participant will have their own Fundraising Web page to make this process easier. Regular e-newsletters to registered athletes will also offer fundraising tips and guidance along the way.
Thank you for your interest in the 2011 Make-A-Wish Triathlon at Sea Colony. We hope to see you at the beach!
